New Product.......Mica Flakes!

Give the look of snow without all the cold! These large, white, iridescent flakes give you shimmer, softness and sparkle:

I created a Christmas ornament by first cutting a circle with my 3 1/2" Circle Die with my BigShot Machine and sponging the edges with Baja Breeze Ink and a Sponge Dauber. I then hand-cut a layer of Baja Breeze cardstock shaped into snow banks and glued Sticky Pages to the front. I glued the snow banks to my circle with adhesive on the back and re-cut the circle with the Big Shot Machine. Peel the 2nd layer off of the Sticky Pages and pour the Mica Flakes on top. Press with your fingers so that the Mica Flakes stick to the Sticky pages. Trim the edge with you Paper Snips:

Look how sparkly the Mica snow looks. I created a mini winter scene with the Snowmuch Fun Stamp Set and my Watercolor Crayons......snow much fun!
